Lyrics

Birds don't fly after dark, my dear--that's a bat. But they should not give you any fear--did you know that? They use their ears to catch mosquitoes that fly and try to bite The chase goes on while you are sleeping, every summer night Under the moon The beautiful moon The moon, the beautiful moon Do you hear that chatter up in the trees? That's the sound of the frogs, though it might seem hard to believe Nature's nocturnal chorus singing here in the backyard What different voices can you hear if you listen really hard? Under the moon The beautiful moon The moon, the beautiful moon The heat of the day starts to fade away And the air gets cool You can stay up a little later Tomorrow there's no school Stretch out here on the grass--lay down your head If you should fall asleep, I will carry you to bed The stars look different tonight than they did last December A few weeks more, they'll be different again by September The leaves will go from green to gold, and they'll start to fall Through the change of the seasons, la luna sees it all Under the moon The beautiful moon The moon, the beautiful moon I see the moon, the moon sees me The moon sees somebody I want to see God bless the moon, and God bless me And God bless the somebody I want to see.
